Mayan Ruins, Belize


Thousands of pre-Columbian structures--including temples and pyramids--were used by over two million Maya for roughly 2000 years, until the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century in what is now the English-speaking Caribbean country of Belize. Many have been destroyed recently for materials used in road construction; many more are threatened.
